Do not use margarine as a substitute for the butter.  It just does not taste the same!

You could use any sort of impression tool to create the effects on top.

You could roll this dough up into a log and cut it as straight circles.  You could also roll it out and use shaped cookie cutters, but you would need to vary the cooking time to account for the size of the cookies made.

Thanks to my MIL for her recipe, which I have halved here to work with the TMX.
